Code of Behaviour

Our Code of Behaviour places emphasis on the positive rather than the negative. It acknowledges that we all have responsibilities, that good behaviour will be rewarded and that poor behaviour will have consequences. Respect is at the heart of Castlecomer Community School and the Code of Behaviour reflects the fact that we all have a responsibility to uphold this very important principle. The main points in the Code are printed in each student’s school diary and all parents/guardians/carers are asked to meet its expectations while their child in the school.
In line with the requirements from the Department of Education and Science, Castlecomer Community School has developed a number of policy documents that serve to support the school community. Copies of all policies are available from the school on request.

Wellread Programme


We are delighted to announce that we have received the "wellread" award, an initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development. The school community is now recognised nationally as a school that promotes and encourages a culture of reading.

You can read more about the award on the PDST website by clicking here, and you can find out more about our school initiatives under the "extra-curricular" tab above.
